Mary Seacole

We learnt about Mary Seacole and the important work she carried out. We found out that she made her own herbal medicines. We searched for natural ingredients to make our own medicines. We were visited by an actress in the role of Mary Seacole. We had the opportunity to take on different roles to act out some of the significant events in Mary’s life and it helped us to find out more information about Mary Seacole’s life and work .

Y1 Trip to the National Portrait Gallery

Year 1 children visited the National Portrait Gallery. We looked at portraits of Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole and learnt important facts about their lives and work. Seeing the portraits helped us to generate questions that we will follow up in class.

 

Key Stage 1 Eid Assembly and Celebrations

Year 1 took part in presenting an assembly about the festival of Eid. We shared pictures we had drawn showing what we do to celebrate Eid and some of us talked about our own experiences. After Eid, we had a party to celebrate in school. We wore our special clothes, ate party food and danced to music.
